Approximately 100 to 200 wild rose species grow naturally
around the world in the northern hemisphere. Most garden roses are complex
hybrids of these species. This variety originated in Bermuda.
This is a disease-resistant shrub rose that flowers over a long season with two
inch, semi-double flowers. Flowers are variously described as hot pink to neon
red. Variously websites describe the flowers as having no fragrance and having
the fragrance of a sweet pea.

Shrub to three or four feet tall.
Light: full sun
Water: drought tolerant when established, flowers best if irrigated
Soil: average garden soil, responds well to fertilizer
In general, roses grow well in a well-drained soil, in full
sun, in a spot with good air circulation. They flower on new growth.
Encouraging new growth with irrigation and fertilizer results in more flowers.
Good air circulation helps control fungal disease.
